    Does the Planet Rafiki train ride in AK take you all areound including the veteranarian spot or does it let you off at one point and have you walk it? Could you bring a stroller for little ones? Couldn't find that info out when I explored? Thanks!

    HI Cheryl!

    Rafiki's Planet Watch is a great place to visit if your little ones enjoy animals!

    The Wildlife Express train will give you a peek into some of the behind the scenes areas of the Animal Kingdom while you ride. Once you arrive at Rafiki's Planet Watch, you'll disembark from the train and walk to the main areas. It is a fairly good walk for little ones (5 to 10 minutes) to get to the animal interaction, habitat and/or conservation areas. 

    If you are renting strollers from the park, you'll need to leave these behind. However, if you have an umbrella-type stroller that folds, I'm told that you'll be able to bring this along on the train. Its a great idea to bring it along if you can, since the initial walk when you disembark the train can be kind of long.

    I hope this helps! Enjoy your time at Animal Kingdom - our family loves it there and we can't wait to get back soon!
